I am a counselling psychotherapist, university instructor, and documentary filmmaker. I creatively express my fascination with people’s stories by making biographical documentary films. My films show how real people have found the courage to face life’s challenges and the ways they manage to grow from their experiences. My films have been described as deeply intimate meditations on what it means to endure worthwhile struggles, to grow from experiences, and to find the creative choices that transform our difficult journeys into opportunities for healing. My films have won awards at major film festivals and screened nationally on CBC television.
